Thanks for testing Jimmy. I found a typo in the installer script and one 
file to remove in /etc. Consequently it fails to make the new user. It's 
all because of the move from live-initramfs to live-boot.

Will upload a fixed ISO later.

In the meantime, here is a quick fix (do this in the live session before 
running the installer):

In a konsole (one line at a time):

sudo su
sed -i 's/1002/1000/'g /usr/bin/remastersys-installer
rm -f /etc/live.conf

You could copy this text to a pen drive to quickly transfer it to a live 
session. I tested the fix on a new install and it worked.

The installer uses grub-gfxboot (grug-legacy) not grub2. It would be 
better first-off to install grub to partition and chainload it from your 
current main OS. You can "upgrade" to grub2 post-install if wanted.
